On to Mars?

Friday, January 23, 2004

It's baaaack . . . . .

After almost two days of silence and gibberish, the Mars rover is back with us and again spewing data back from Mars. Perhaps a Martian mechanic re-started it?! Sign in to see full entry.

An Open Letter to President Bush:

Mr. President: Thank you so much for your recent decisions pertaining to the expansion of our space program, particularly as related to setting up a Moon Base and future exploration of Mars. Many of your critics on the issue of space exploration seem to forget the many, many things we use and enjoy... Sign in to see full entry.

Good News

It looks as if Mr. Bush has begun to see the value of space exploration and travel. I hope he and those who follow him stick to the program. Sign in to see full entry.

New Exploration of Mars

Apparently we have some more exploration of Mars coming up in January, not all that far off. Another mission is scheduled to arrive that is able to take and analyze samples of rock, dirt, atmosphere, gravity, magnetic forces, etc., on the surface of Mars. I hope it will also send back photos. Sign in to see full entry.

Mars as a Space Port

Mars is a potentially friendly planet, with some water, a thin atmosphere and a manageable gravitational field. Perhaps we could build a kind of space station on Mars that would be used to house crews on missions to other parts of the solar system, crews to process raw materials found on more...

Edge of the Solar System . . . .

I read today that Voyager has reached the edge of the Solar system. I thought that had already happened, but it is quite a distance from us in any event. Now taht was a finely tuned space craft. We need to get back into the thrust of creating exploration technologies to discover things about space,... Sign in to see full entry.

Budget problems a farce

It has been said and written that to go on to Mars with a manned mission is too costly. Has anyone checked to see the industries and jobs developed by the more conservative space explorations to the moon and in Earth orbit. We serve to gain much in not only knowledge, but national income by... Sign in to see full entry.

We are being followed

China is ready to launch its first orbiting astronaut; they are coming up on us in space technology. If we don't restart our "engines," we will soon be lagging in the exploration of space, and that could be costly in scientific, political and financial arenas. This is a crucial point and we need to... Sign in to see full entry.

Copy of letter sent to President Bush

I am concerned regarding the downgrading of our national space program over the past several years, beginning prior to your administration and continuing into it. It is true that there have been a few tragedies and technical problems, yet this should not deter us from moving forward. Adversity... Sign in to see full entry.

How should we go about planning this expedition?

It would be a great accomplishment for the United States to send a manned craft to Mars, but exceedingly expensive. I propose that the United Nations or better yet, an International Space Agency (ISA) pool the resources of many nations to plan and build toward a manned mission to Mars. A side...
